    Event Description:


    Through this interactive workshop, explore practices that support the successful engagement of knowledge philanthropists, or skilled volunteers, and learn how to proactively plan for, attract and engage knowledge philanthropists in your work.

    This workshop will cover:

    • Identify the opportunity afforded by engaging knowledge philanthropists. 
    • Differentiate between knowledge philanthropy, board roles, and traditional volunteer roles. 
    • Identify the issues that can support or hinder knowledge philanthropists' work. 
    • Describe how to manage knowledge philanthropists and understand the tools used to do this.
